(cafetheology.org) – According to FIA President Jean Todt, the Formula 1 will have no more than ten teams in the field in the near future. Although the Automobile World Federation also considers twelve racing stables in the royal class to be possible, but currently no candidate for a place on the horizon is in sight. "It is nothing I would see as a very serious offer," says the Frenchman, pointing to the fact that interested projects such as StefanGP are not to be taken seriously. Nevertheless, potential new teams are open at the FIA: "If we see that there are a few serious offers, then yes ", says Todt to the question whether growth is generally possible. He refers to the Haas team, who started last year and had previously signaled their interest. "We saw that there was a serious interest, so we made a call for tenders," said the FIA ​​president. Haas has been the only new team that has made it into Formula One since 2010. At that time, three new racing stables came under the promise of a budget ceiling with Lotus (later Caterham), HRT and Virgin (later Marussia) – but they never came, and all the teams have disappeared. "At the moment we have ten teams, we would accept twelve teams at the most, so I'm looking forward to every good offer," adds Todt.

Own construction instead of takeover: A dozen teams have stamped their own project since 1990, only four survived

Formula 1 is an ever-changing roundabout: over the past decades, there have been numerous team transfers and renaming, but only twelve teams, like the US Haas team, have been re-established since 1990. Among the pioneers were dream dancers, many super riches and a world group, but also two true motorsport enthusiasts. Only five of the often chronically mired teams managed to get championship points. Three teams won even Grands Prix. Only four projects have survived, only one in the original form. We tell the stories behind the crazy dozen.

The regulations even envisage 13 possible racing stables in Formula 1. The number of 26 vehicles was often cracked in earlier years, so that teams had to fight for the qualification for a long time – even today, three teams are less than theoretically possible. Currently there are agreements with the racing stables that will allow a maximum of twelve teams. But Todt also does not want to exclude a complete field in the future: "Never say never."
